dc.description.abstract In the busy streets of Beirut, traffic is inevitable. Emergency services struggle through this traffic to respond to calls of various types, some being more urgent that others. Providing safety and medical response to the public in a prompt marmer becomes a priority for emergency service providers. Hence, avoiding busy and lengthy roads when possible help them achieve this objective. As traffic is an unpredictable issue, avoiding unnecessary detours could be just the solution they need. In this project, we develop MobiMedic; a tool based on the map of the city of Beirut that allows emergency dispatch personnel to provide emergency vehicles responding to a call with a shortest journey to take to get to incident site, the condition and the number of cases reported. This will allow the crew of the emergency vehicle responding to the call to be prepared for the case anticipated and get there as fast as possible avoiding lengthy routes. Moreover, our tool will allow for quality assurance audits and reviews as the calls being reported are logged as they occur. We are hoping that the implementation of MobiMedic at this stage will open doors to enhancements. The functionalities introduced are the comer steps on the way to a state-of-art emergency response solution. We also hope that one day we will be able to make use of this application in real life to serve the lebanese Red Cross in their noble mission. en_US
